Ludacris earned SAG nominations for his roles in "Crash" and "Hustle & Flow." Both films picked up nominations in the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture category, which means Ludacris is in the enviable position of competing against himself for top honors.

Ludacris worked with Howard in both "Hustle & Flow" and "Crash" and made the trek to the So California desert resort town to watch Howard pick up the festival's Rising Star Award. Prior to taking part in the star-studded event, Ludacris spoke with me about "Crash" and the SAG awards:
